Profile
“Therapy, to me, is a sacred place of trust and vulnerability, where ungrieved loss can finally find expression, where parts of ourselves that we have hidden away can finally be revealed, and where healing is welcomed and witnessed.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have always been drawn to heartwork, work that feels deeply personal and meaningful. I am also someone who is curious about everything life has to offer and finds people and their stories to be endlessly compelling and worth holding with great compassion. I hoped psychology would give me a way to relieve some of the individual and collective suffering around me. I spent the first part of my career working in community mental health, an experience that was deeply transformative for me and by their report, the clients I served. Therapy, to me, is a sacred place of trust and vulnerability, where ungrieved loss can finally find expression, where parts of ourselves that we have hidden away can finally be revealed, and where healing is welcomed and witnessed. In recent years, I have become very interested in meditation practices, such as mindfulness and yoga, to help clients reunite with their true nature and find reprieve from an unrelenting culture of productivity.
What should someone know about working with you?
My intake process consists of some brief forms to obtain legally-necessary consent as well as additional information about yourself and what you hope to get out of our time together. Collaboratively, we create a treatment plan, which provides us with some goals to measure our work by. I most enjoy working with motivated, open, insightful, curious, and caring clients.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am most excited about the long-overdue Western embrace of Eastern philosophies and traditions, specifically Buddhist psychology, meditation, mindfulness, and yoga. I am 200-hour-certified in yoga and find the body and the present experience to be the greatest teacher for anyone seeking inner peace and vitality. I am working to become certified to teach mindfulness-based stress reduction and in the process, have taken the eight-week fundamental course and next plan to attend a multi-day silent retreat. I find great nourishment from inspired reading on these topics and hope to continue to participate in and create a community where these values and practices can be embodied. I am also committed to understanding how racial and gender identities influence our experience by acknowledging the harm and pain of our cultural history and present, dismantling systemic racism, and combating identity-conforming pressures that inhibit the full expression of the human experience.
